The Q&A Archives: Cherry tree

Question: I have a van cherry already in the ground for a year. Found out that this type needs a pollinator. Heard Stella was a great choice, so now I have one, but how far from the other can I go for the pollinating to work? please help.

Answer: Your cherry trees will be pollinated by flying insects so you'll want to situate them within line-of-sight of one another. Most experts agree that you can plant them as far away as 50' from one another and still get good fruiting. Plant your trees as close as 20' (to allow for ample growth room), but no further than 50' apart.

Best wishes with your trees!
